Tips For Setting Up Your First Tower Garden: A Beginner’s Guide

Do you want to grow fresh herbs and vegetables with no need to buy land to work on?

The innovation of the future like Gardyn's tower garden ensures you can grow fresh products at home, using the vertical space only. 

It's an elegant way to learn more about gardening while maintaining fair and sustainable produce all the time. But how to get started? How to set up your new indoor garden?

Ready to get started? Here are five essential tips to ensure a smooth setup for your first tower garden:

1. Choose the Right System

While there are plenty of similar solutions, Gardyn's tower garden system stands out for its exceptional features. The innovative Hybriponics technology combines hydroponics and aeroponics so that plants can have optimal access to water, oxygen, and nutrients. That way, they grow faster and even higher.

2. Find the Perfect Location

Even though Gardyn's tower system has an integrated lighting option, you still need to choose a well-lit spot for it. Ideally, it should be exposed to at least 6 hours of daily sunlight. Also, ensure you place it close to a power outlet to ensure regular light exposure.

3. Set Up Your Garden

Always read the tower garden's instructions for the appropriate water type and filling level. Avoid using softened or heavily chlorinated water full of chemicals since it damages the plants. Most systems, like Gardyn's, typically use cool tap water.

4. Plant Your Seeds (or Pods)

Vertical indoor gardens may work with fertilized pods, or you can plant the plants you want. It's up to you to make the most appropriate choice. The trick is that you must follow the manual guide and insert the seeds or pods in the designated slots so they can receive enough oxygen and water that promote ongoing growth.

5. Adjust the App Settings and Monitor the Growth

Most tower gardens come with an app to control lighting and water flow and monitor nutrient levels. This way, you have a complete control on how your plants grow and what else do you need to become even better at indoor gardening. Use the app so you can get used to the settings that promote optimal plant growth.

In general, these are the main steps to take to set up your indoor vertical garden. Use this knowledge to become even better at home gardening, and encourage the people around you to try something new, innovative, and sustainable - and eat quality food as a result.
